My friends, it is March…which means that there’s a pretty big college basketball tournament going on.
This year, however, my team didn’t make it past the first round of the tournament so I obviously need a huge distraction at this time…and what better way than delicious food, friends and a very addicting game to help me!
This week, I’ve partnered with Foster Farms to make sure you slam dunk your game viewing parties and I’ve decided to share my top tips for an awesome time!
When people ask me what I like to do for fun, you better believe that ‘brunch’ is high on my list.
When friends visit me, I take them out to brunch. When my friends and I need to catch up, we go to brunch. When my mom is craving something sweet and savory, we go to brunch.
In case you aren’t quite sure where to go for brunch or if you need some brunch recommendations, I am here for you! Check out 5 of my favorite brunch spots in Phoenix and Scottsdale that you absolutely need to add to your bucket list!
Happy International Women’s Day everyone!
What a day. Without planning it, today I wore my Society of Women Engineers polo, I went out to lunch with a female coworker/friend, I went on group run with my #EnthusiasticAboutRunning group (comprised mainly of women), and I went on my social media accounts to see my feed filled with inspirational stories of women.
Today, this past weekend (and honestly every day of my life) has been all about women supporting women and I AM HERE FOR IT. I had the best four days at the Weallgrow Latina summit this last weekend in beautiful Long Beach, California and I can’t be the only one experiencing summit withdrawals. So much inspiration, empowerment, growth, learning opportunities, mentoring, yoga, swag, beautiful views, and support.
WeAllGrow Latina is a network of women that connects influencers/bloggers with brands but also empowers Latinas by hosting a summit every year in California.
I attended in 2016 (you can check out that post and video here!), missed last year (because I was officiating a wedding) but was thrilled to be able to return this year.
Check out 10 reasons to join me at next year’s summit; 2019 cannot come soon enough!
My cousin recently moved out to Goodyear and messaged me asking for the best places to hike in West Phoenix and I directed her to my Hiking Bucket List. After sending her the link, I realized the Hiking Bucket List has hikes all over Arizona and she really just needed a more specialized list, so I made it happen! I aim to please, and if you cross off all these hikes and need more inspiration, check out 5 North Phoenix Hikes To Add To Your Hiking Bucket List! Enjoy!

A few months ago, I visited Vancouver for the first time ever to celebrate my friend’s last few nights of being single and we had a freaking blast. We splurged a little and stayed at an extravagant Airbnb in Downtown Vancouver with beautiful views and it was so worth it! If you’re not familiar with Airbnb, it is a great way to travel if you are trying to save some cash. Airbnb is a company that allows people to rent out rooms, apartments, or entire homes for travelers! Feel free to use my Airbnb link here to save $40 off of your first Airbnb stay.
I’ve given you all wallpapers from Puerto Rico and from Chicago…who is ready for wallpapers from Vancouver?!
I’ll be in Spain and Italy in less than two weeks which has me reminiscing on my very first trip to Europe back in 2015. A big part of that trip was admiring some of the most beautiful cathedrals I’ve ever seen in my life.
I haven’t always been Enthusiastic About Cathedrals, in fact, what started out as a cute thing with my mom…kind of just escalated. On my first Europe trip, my mom told me that she was going to really miss me so to help her, I decided to take a photo of every cathedral I encountered and send it to her. She has always loved cathedrals and I thought it would be a fun way to sort of bring her along on my trip.
I will of course continue the tradition and send her cathedral photos from Spain and Italy so I figured I would share the photos I already had with all of you! Check out 4 of my favorite cathedrals in Ireland, Belgium, France, and Germany! You can follow my live adventures on Instagram to see me discover even more cathedrals!
If you’ve been following along for a while, you’ll know two things about me: I am Enthusiastic About Food AND I am Enthusiastic About Running so naturally I love Italian food. Two years ago, I ran my first 5K and two months ago, I ran my first full marathon!
Running a 5K and a marathon are two very different things, and getting from a 5K to a marathon teaches you a lot. One of the biggest lessons learned was that it is so necessary to carb-load so today let’s talk about what that entails and where you can find the best Italian restaurants in Phoenix to do just this!
Have you heard of The Dells in Prescott? I know it sounds a bit ominous but trust me, it’s anything but! I love Prescott and would definitely consider moving there just for the hiking. One of my favorite hikes in Prescott are The Dells, and I think you will understand when you see nine of my favorite photos. Enjoy, and let me know if you’ve been inspired!
Happy new year my friends, it is officially 2018! It feels so weird to say that, but it’s here! 2017 was a great year for travel, for bucket list items, and for the blog. I think a big part of why it was such a great year was because I wrote a list of bucket list items I wanted to cross off in 2017 so I am going to do that again this year!
Just like last year, this blog post is multi-purpose, I want to share and inspire you all to set some goals for the New Year, and I also want to put this out into the Universe. I believe that once you say something out loud and/or write it down, the Universe will be on your side and help you accomplish whatever you set out to do. You can read more about that in 7 Reasons To Have A Bucket List.
But for now, let me know if you will be crossing off any similar items (maybe we can do them together)! These are in no particular order, enjoy!
